  • Add the following:
<configuration>
   <system.webServer>

However, if the site is on a server with Robust Exception Information enabled, and you wish to disable Robust Exception Information, add this to the site's Application.cfc:

<cfset this.enablerobustexception = false />

If no Applciation.cfc exists, make a file called Application.cfc and take the code below. Paste it in and save.

<cfcomponent displayname="Application" output="true">
<cfset THIS.Name = "Debugging" />
<cfset this.enablerobustexception = true />
</cfcomponent>
